Description

Welcome to Science in the Valley


Since 2005, Trinity Western University's Biology, Chemistry Math/Computer Science and Environmental Studies departments host hundreds of students throughout the Fraser Valley at our Science in the Valley Program each May. The program offers workshops to classes in the GVRD School Districts as well as home-schooled students. Science in the Valley helps to encourage and excite students towards further study of Science. All activities are taught with an emphasis on student participation and a "can do" attitude. With only one class per session, students receive personal teaching instruction from TWU's Undergraduate students.

Each student will be given a manual for use during the field trip and then upon completion of each workshop students will receive a certificate of participation.

Programs we offer:

  • Grade 4: Salmon
  • Grade 5: Eco-Systems and Human Impact
  • Grade 6: Biology
  • Grade 7: Chemistry
  • Grade 7: Math/Computer Science

Pricing:

  • All programs are $12 per student with a minimum class payment of $250.
  • Teachers and chaperones are free

Details regarding each program can be found on the Website. (Hyperlink to: https://www.twu.ca/academics/faculty-natural-and-applied-sciences/science-valley)
